School Canopies & Shelters

We have established ourselves with a strong reputation for providing high-quality hardwood shelter products to schools across the UK. Over the past 30 years, we have extended our knowledge from bus shelters to school canopies.

We have worked with a wealth of councils and organisations over the years, understanding what suits different buildings and specific school requirements. School Canopies are a great addition to any educational establishment and there are many different uses, for example, entrance canopies, walkway canopies, and outdoor shelters are all a great additional to outdoor areas.

There have been many reports over the past few years stating that outdoor education allows students to learn better, however, in the UK the weather isn't always reliable which is why we provide Playground Shelters to allow students of all ages to take their learning outside in all weathers.

We design, manufacture and install a wide variety of school shelters. They are extremely strong and durable to stand the test of time, and of course to stand the test of teenagers! These canopies for schools are great for walkways in both the winter months where pathways need protecting from snow, and also in summer months where the sun's UV rays are prominent. Not every school will be looking for the same canopy; we create both traditional hardwood shelters and brightly-coloured plastic school shelters.

Canopies for Schools

We provide a range of canopies for schools, and the products we manufacture are highly adaptable and can be used for a number of applications including play areas, outdoor learning areas, covered walkways and covered sport stands.

We have worked with Nurseries, Schools, Colleges and Universities up and down the UK.

Outdoor learning is becoming more and more important in schools as Ofsted strongly recommends schools provide outdoor learning environments. Permanent School Canopies offer protection from potentially harmful UV rays and help to minimise the risk of sunburn while studying outside. Not only do canopies offer protection against the weather they also promote social interaction between students, they offer meeting points and "chill out zones" for both students and teachers.
